  • 11. SEE-GRID-2: new directions Policy-focused deployment strategy Shift priority from a “top-down” approach (i.e. from regional project execution to national implementation) towards a a “bottom-up” approach (from national priorities, cooperation, and innovation to regional cohesiveness) Achieve Grid uptake and buy-in beyond the “usual suspects” of the R&E community (-> government, policy-makers, dialogue with industry…) Growth of infrastructure Expand regionally to include new countries/areas and widen the SEE eInfra community Expand nationally to include new sites/institutes and strengthen collaboration in each country Application-driven deployment approach serve the needs of diverse and multi-disciplinary communities extend the user-base – USE the grid, USE the network, USE the Infrastructure SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 11
  • 12. Work organization WP1 - Project management WP2 – Sustainability Studies and Strategies for sustainable operational, organizational and policy schemes WP3 - eInfrastructure expansion and operations support WP4 - User community enlargement and applications support WP5 - Training, dissemination and communication SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 12

  • 14. SEE-GRID-2 objectives: upgrade SEE grid infrastructure Upgrade the capacity of the regional pilot infrastructure Guarantee stability and interoperability of the infrastructure Support the accreditation of national Grid CAs. Strengthen operations at national level Deploy portal technology for accessing the grid and supporting application development and deployment Draw upon deployment experience/results of other grid projects (EGEE/EGEE-II, EUMEDGRID, BalticGrid, EELA, etc) SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 14
  • 15. SEE-GRID-2 objectives: strengthen the human network Liaise with and beyond SEE user communities Training events at regional level for site admins and end-users at national-level Dissemination events at regional level for policymakers and public at large at national-level Regional eInfra projects Policy Workshop – September in Geneva! SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 15

  • 19. Using the infrastructure Going to website www.seegrid.eu Talking to the SEEGRID representative in the country Obtaining a certificate from SEE-GRID catch-all CA Joining the SEE-GRID VO Asking local country Grid team to provide support Currently 10+ new applications under development, ~20 in the course of the project SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 19
  • 20. Strategic priority: NGIs Formation of stable NGIs is the key to long-term sustainability National Grid Initiatives are concertated efforts taken at National level in order to deploy, operate, and expand grid infrastructures in a coherent and coordinated way Usually involves the inter-connection and inter- operation of academic and research-based resource centers under an umbrella of a national program aiming to integrate the available resources in order to establish an e-Infrastructure for the benefit of the R&E (e-Science) community, and in the long-term for the society at large SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 20
  • 21. “A roadmap for establishing NGIs”: first recommendations SEE-GRID Policy Workshop: held in Nov 2004 in The Hague during the EU Grid leadership week / 2nd EGEE conference No (product-quality, high-performing) grid without a (product-quality, high-capacity, reliable) network “Web of trust” that brings human capital together Exploit existing infrastructure and provide alternative technical roadmaps Homogeneity of all available infrastructure/resources is not realistic Key issue is interoperability Study both “best-practices” and “bad-practices” in grid-advanced regions and countries Sustainability is achieved through coordinated and complementary actions. No single instrument/framework can address all issues of e-Infrastructure expansion and deployment Political support is of primary importance, even more than available funding and technology solutions A "champion" is needed to drive things per region/country / committed end- user community • -> http://www.see-grid.org/Policy.pdf SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 21
  • 22. Greenfield regions: further recommendations Carry out complementary but coordinated actions Training! NGI establishment, but allow for separate national strategies/agendas of NGIs: no sliver bullet Broad partnerships through MoUs and joint work: EGEE, SEEGRID, other regions Use EC financing as seed money – seek other sources Organize in federations with clear relations and modus operandi; scalable structure needed Distribute Grid and management services to spread the know- how and ensure joint responsibility and control Aim to have possibility of stand-alone operations, independent on related federated Grids and projects Adopt good technical solutions but also pursue alternatives Have clear/quantified target/criteria for migrating to EGEE SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 22
  • 23. SEE-GRID-2 long-term strategy Strategic success metrics of regional Grid initiatives: not Gbps/sec not the number of nodes not the TBs of storage The initiatives are puzzle pieces of RTD efforts to sustain regional development Increasing the retention of talented scientists in the region Pursuing joint R&D efforts among countries in the region Making available the benefits of the Information Society for citizens Easing the digital divide between the region and the countries at other side of spectrum Improvement of regional competitiveness in all market sectors Regional political stability and cohesiveness SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 23
  • 24. Conclusions SEE-GRID was the first step for regional eInfrastructure integration SEE-GRID-2 is the next step towards SUSTAINABLE Grid-related ACTIVITIES (NOT just infrastructure!) in the SEE region SEE-GRID-2 is open for discussions, feedback, inputs to other related regional initiatives SEE-GRID-2: Advancing South-East Europe into the eInfrastructure era 24
